About Our Training

I realized in our video we didn't explain the program we are using to train for the 10K!

Last week we completed Week One of the Couch to 5K program and we downloaded Robert Ullrey's podcast to help.  Week one includes a five minute warm up walk then alternating between 1 min jogging and 1 1/2 min walking and finishing with a cool down 5 min walk.  You do this three times during the week.  I (Sadie) found the first jog the most challenging and noticed a big difference in ease with the other walk/jogs.  I ended up doing two extra ones because Aaron started the day after I did and then I did one in the morning by myself and another in the evening with Aaron.  Pretty proud of myself because our level of activity prior to this has been pretty low.  We both love getting out and hiking or walking, but we are not consistent at all.

So now we're on Week 2!  We have a video planned to let you know how it is going, so stay tuned. :)
